### Abstract

In this paper we study the space requirement of algorithms that make only one (or a small number of) pass(es) over the input data. We study such algorithms under a model of data streams that we introduce here. We give a number of upper and lower bounds for problems stemming from queryprocessing, invoking in the process tools from the area of communication complexity.
